Great - grandmother traveled around the world. This was part of her estate. No other known owner.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful jade necklace. Such vintage jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The necklace with jade beads has a lovely colour and the size of the beads are quite nice and makes the necklace very elegant. There are many variations in the types of jade and sizes of beads. This particular type of jade is often seen in export necklaces and jewellery and the prices for this type are in the lower end.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellery auction, where I believe the necklace has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the jade necklace. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
